I'm getting a haircut tomorrow and I am excited! I always tell myself I'll grow my hair long(er) and then off it goes.
The Fall Party is this Saturday! There will be games, food, and lots of fun. I am so looking forward to it.
Here are a couple of links to some crafts I want to make:
These are the paper pumpkins you see at the top. So cute...
Don't know what it is about a good mobile I like.....but this one I especially like :)
oFf to do dishes and laundry!

So there are two important events you need to be aware of! The big event for October is the Fall Party which will take place at the old house on the farm in Goshen. It will be on October 4th and will start around 6:00. There will be food, games, and celebration!
The second big event is the 2nd Annual Variety Show which will take place at momma and daddy's house on Thanksgiving Day. This is your chance to shine! Come prepared with a dance, song, skit, etc. Costumes are optional, but you don't have to show up in your costume..you can change before the show. :)
I hope you're looking forward to these events as much as I am! In my humble opinion...there are far too many things in life not worth celebrating at all....so I believe in finding the things that ARE worth celebrating...and life, family, and friends are some of those things! :)

Bring back memories?? :) (Grandma, you lucked out...I couldn't get your picture to post! :( I'm sorry...and Bec I took these pics from your blog and there were no pictures of you....this year I'll getchya!)
Just a friendly reminder that the 2nd Annual Variety show (which will be bigger and better this year-two new additions this year--Caleb and Nathan!) will be in two months and ten days.
You may sing, dance, do a demonstration, read a selection, drama, teach us something, or do a combination of all! The sky is the limit!

This picture is a thank-you for Grandma! This pan had potatoes and onions stuck to the bottom pretty bad. Grandma said to put some baking soda on it and then add a bit of water (enough to cover the burned part), and then boil it for a second. I did that, and the burned stuff came right off! :)
The weekend is almost here and I am looking forward to hanging out with my momma, relaxing with Brett, and getting caught up on cleaning/grocery shopping/sleep :).
Thanksgiving Variety Show coming soon! Prepare now! :)

Cute new clothes from my mom-in-law, Janice :). Thank-you! A perfect fit :).
Today we had a birthday celebration at momma and daddy's after church.. It was wonderful! Grandma, Papaw, the Mccraine's, the Crosses, the Capper's, and the Torbett's were all there. We ate, opened gifts, ate pie, played water balloon volleyball, badmitton, and visited. I so enjoyed the day. Check Jana or Becca's site for pictures! (I didn't take any :( )
Talk to ya'll soon!

These are the beautiful, cheerful flowers my dear husband sent me. Don't they just make you smile?
I am feeling somewhat better today...and am trying to make myself relax. Brett is good about making me rest. :)

I also received many phone calls and I apologize for not calling you all back.
I got a shot and antibiotics today..........because I have a sinus infection. :(
Daddy called our birthdays in to KLRC to play on the radio and momma called and said won the marketplace gift certificate! What excitement :)

I made this pie for Brett's food day at work. I may have gone a little heavy on the cinnamon/sugar...and Brett and I went for a stroll while it was in the oven so it may have cooked a bit long. I guess we'll find out!
For my birthday tomorrow Brett offered to take me to a play.....instead we're going to wait until November because Anne of Green Gables is coming to the Arts Center! I can't wait :).
So, he let me pick the night's agenda....We will be eating at PowerHouse (because they have the BEST caesar salad I have ever eaten..such a treat), and then go to Barnes and Noble, then go to ColdStone, and then rent a funny movie. I am very, very excited.
We had our first book club meeting tonight. I have some catch up reading to do in the Screwtape letters, but I really enjoyed our discussion tonight. It was very thought provoking.
Nurse Abby (Abby Dorman) is coming as a guest speaker at school tomorrow...plus I get to see my momma after school. It is going to be a good day!

I signed up to teach an after-school club at school today. It will run twice a week, for an hour and a half each time..........for about 5 or 6 weeks. The name of my club is.................
I am really excited about this! I will have 15 first and second-graders and we are going to read poems already written, as well as write our own. We're also going to make various types of puppets (such as hand, sock, marionette, paper mache,etc.). We will sometimes make puppets for poems already written. We will also write and design our own poems and puppets...
Can everyone please save cereal boxes? (or boxes of similiar size?) I found a great idea on how to make a mini puppet stage with this type of box.
I also joined a Thursday night bookclub today........it's being facilitated by some girls from the Link and should work out perfectly! I love to read....and I love having fellowship with other girls. Plus Brett has a study group on Thursday nights for a couple of hours......we may even be able to ride together to book club and study group. Our first book we'll be reading is called the Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis.
Talk to you all soon! Love. p.s.-If you would like the e-mails with the links about poems and puppetry I will be using let me know!

This one is pretty good too :)
Back to the kiddos tomorrow..... This weekend Brett and I went to Branson for a night, and stayed out at the farm for another. We got wonderful rest and a lot of sleep.....What a blessing!
I share a birthday this Friday with my twin sister, Jana. :) :) Birthdays are double the fun with a twin! We'll be 25.
Write more later............'night. p.s.-God loves you.......
